Disclosure: I am participating in the 2017 Cookie Campaign with Rodelle as part of their Brand Ambassador program. All opinions are my own.
This post was originally published here on December 21, 2013. I’ve since updated the photographs and text. I hope these blondies become part of your Holiday baking routine for many years to come!
I’m coming at you just one week away from Christmas with the most perfect dessert that you need to add to your baking list: Gingerbread Blondies with White Chocolate.
I have been making these squares for years. And I get requests for them all the time from my family and friends. They are thick and chewy (toothsome, you might say). And perfectly spiced.
Oh and hello, they are super easy. No rolling, cutting or elaborate pipping skills are required. Because let’s be honest, as much as I love a fancy decorated cookie, sometimes you just don’t have the time for that shit. And all you can manage to do is pour batter into a pan, bake it and slice it into squares. Done and done.
Also, these babies stay fresh and moist for a whole week, which makes them a great baked good for cookie swaps, Holiday parties and gift giving. Sadly, I find the shelf life of most homemade cookies to be 2-3 days maximum. This year, don’t get caught leaving stale treats out for Santa. Make these Gingerbread Blondies with White Chocolate instead!
The white chocolate here is clutch, so don’t skip it. I find it’s sweetness pairs really well with all the warm, traditional gingerbread spices. There are chunks of white chocolate in the blondies themselves. And then extra drizzled on top. And you guys, don’t be shy with the chocolate drizzle. It’s almost Christmas. Restraint is out the window at this point.
As you may or may not know, I’ve been a Brand Ambassador for Rodelle for a couple years now. Each December, Rodelle hosts a Holiday Cookie Campaign, which basically means all the Brand Ambassadors create cookie recipes with their favorite Rodelle products to share. Pretty sweet, if you ask me! So if you’re in need of some cookie inspiration, check out this link to see all the other recipes. And turn your ovens on and up! Santa will thank you!
